Since there is a correlation of about.60 between reading comprehension and eye movements, it is of importance psychologically to understand the nature of this relationship. Three possible causal relationships may exist. First, comprehension may determine the action of the eyes in reading; second, certain functions of eye movement may determine reading efficiency; or third, some undescribed factor may affect each of these and account for the relationship.
